By Chris Bates Free

Developer's Description

*** Public Open Beta *** README - Might just be me but had to reboot my device when I installed this version.Special thanks to everyone over at XDA and wonderhowto.com your feedback has been amazing.*** NOTICE ***Iam traveling the next 2 weeks so I wont be able to respond to emails. Iam not ignoring you just wont have data services (Plus the wife wont let me bring a computer). *** NOTICE ***Ive added two experimental features, They are not quite ready for prime time but it may help some of you while Iam away.NOTE: These are APLHA features and will probably cause issues. If I was not traveling I would not have added them yet.- Direct mode, This is first pass on directly controlling media applications. If you noticed that play sometime launches the wrong application this may help. - Known Issues - Headset controls may no longer work or cause multiple applications to start - Music application may not pause when a call comes in- Alternative Collection. This is a first pass on collecting data in different ways. For applications where no metadata is available this may help. - Known Issues - Can cause metadata from other applications to show up. - You disable this feature you may need to manually remove and add applications that did not work before. *** For Existing Users README ***Thanks for all the feed back. Added few more options to the widgets based on your feedback. You may notice that your current widgets have a back button now. If you dont want it just delete and re-add the widget its now configurable.New Features- Increased size of icons/buttons on notification to accommodate back button. - Back button now available optionally on every widget.- Back button now available optionally on notification.- Optional link to your applications on every widget.- Optionally can round the corners of the widgets. - 2 new widgets based on user feedback - 4x1 - Cover art on the left large text and hidden controls on the right. - 3x2 - Same as existing 3x2 just with bigger cover art.*** Widget Configuration Controls ***- Background color- Background transparency- Support for background gradient.

Media Utilities is designed to give you unified tools for all of your media applications. Do you like Pandora or Spotify, but wish each had notification controls? Media Utilities provides unified notification controls that let you control the most recently started media application as well as easily jump to it.Hate having to search for your media application just because you paused it? All of the controls keep track of the last running media application to let you easily resume or launch it.There are several widgets available on the Play store that let you play/pause any media application. But few show you all of the meta data. Media Utilities gets all the meta data including cover art from your favorite media application (Pandora, Spotify, Songza, etc.) and displays it in a clean, unified widget.Media Utilities provides several different widgets to satisfy your particular needs, from a classic, single row design to a larger widget that displays cover art with hidden controls for the ultimate in clean design.Media Utilities is now in open beta. Feature requests and feedback are encouraged and would be greatly appreciated.Recent changes:>>> Latest Changes - Added direct mode - Added secondary metadata lookup - minor performance fixes - minor bug fixes>>> Recent Changes Version 35 - Back added to everything (optional) - More widget Config - More WidgetsVersion 35 - Fixed rendering issue for 4x4 widgetsVersion 33 - Widget configurationVersion 32 - Added a 4x2 widget - Updated 4x4 widgets to include link to link to main activity.
